Pregnancy Yoga

| December 11, 2011

One of the best things I did when I was pregnant was yoga. I swear by it and encourage every future yummy mummy to do the same.

Yoga tailored for pregnancy kept me flexible, relaxed, in shape and fit. I know baby girl enjoyed it too, with her encouraging flutters spurring me on!

I followed a simple 40 minute pregnancy yoga routine every other day, in the comfort of my own home.

I highly recommend the pregnancy yoga DVD Yoga For Me and My Baby DVDwhich provides the perfect mix of pregnancy yoga and relaxation.

This pregnancy yoga DVD is filmed in Byron Bay in Australia, with many shots taken on the beach in the beautiful sunshine with the noise of gentle waves in the background.

I always feel so revived and refreshed after this workout.

Yoga For Me and My Baby DVDincludes breathing exercises, the 40 minute yoga workout, pelvic floor exercises, third trimester poses and a post-natal yoga workout.

I love this DVD as the yoga poses are gentle, the instructor is heavily pregnant throughout the pre-natal yoga workout (so you have something in common) and in the post-natal workout she demonstrates the yoga poses with her new baby on the beach!

Having the workout on DVD is especially beneficial when you start to get larger and travelling becomes more difficult. 

And at around £5 you can’t go wrong and it’s cheaper than a yoga class!

From Career Girl to Yummy Mummy

| December 9, 2011

I became a thirty-something Yummy Mummy to my beautiful baby girl in March 2011.

Over the last few months, I’ve learnt more than a University degree in the world of babies.

I went from high-flying career girl, straight into the depths of motherhood.

Having agreed to work until my due date, it was only when baby girl decided to be 2 weeks overdue that I was granted some time to put my feet up and intrepidly await the joyous moment when I would welcome my baby into the world!

What a roller-coaster this new vocation is!
